UAW Members Build 2015 Truck of The Year
UAW Local 2250 members have something to be very proud of: the General Motors Wentzville, Missouri plant workers build 2015 Motor Trend’s Truck of the Year. The award was announced this week and it recognizes the best “all-new or significantly updated trucks and vans for the upcoming model year.” It competed against nine other vehicles and was the hands down winner.
UAW Local 2250 Chairman Mike Bullock notes, “Our members are very proud of this vehicle. We’re moving to add a third shift and probably another thousand jobs as sales of the Colorado increase. This is good for everyone and a proud testament to a quality product made by union members.”
The Colorado won this prestigious award this year due to its size, smooth ride, value and efficiency. It was a rare unanimous winner selected by Motor Trend’s judges. In its press release, Edward Loh, Motor Trend’s editor-in-chief, said: “After days of testing, hundreds of miles on the road and our most rigorous truck testing program to date, our editors unanimously selected the Chevy Colorado as our 2015 Truck of the Year. Colorado is a smart, capable and refreshingly honest truck that makes a strong value and efficiency statement. It’s perfectly sized and suited for the needs of many of today’s truck users.”
